My attempts to understand hihi behaviour began with a Master's project in 2003 & 2004, and I have been fascinated by hihi ever since (PhD on hihi 2006-2010). I am interested in how evolution has shaped hihi behaviour, and how this affects their survival now and into the future. I am currently a research fellow at the University of Cambridge, U.K. where I am funded by the Natural Environment Research Council U.K. to explore how hihi acquire information about their environment, and how we might use this knowledge to help improve our conservation efforts. I have almost 10 years experience with hihi in the field, predominantly on Tiritiri Matangi Island, as well as experience working with birds in the UK.
